In the beginning God created Adam and Eve which should tell us that God intended for marriage to be between one man and one woman. Is Obama going to support polygamy next?

No way. The only reason he is doing that is to get the gay votes. And nearly all the blacks will vote for him bc he is BLACK. It's about time he got voted out before its too late. Who knows, one day it could be a crime to Christian or straight. It sure seems like its headed that way now

He is also half white but he has suppressed that truth. Black or white doesn't matter, there is good and bad in each. Homosexual marriages vs what God intended. You are either Christian or you are not. I feel that he is using this as a means to get elected again. If he is truly a Christian, he needs to spend more time in God's word to get clarity on this issue.

At the root of the political circus of the western world, at the root of our dysfunctional and corrupt electoral system is a very clever little lie that prevents the people from regaining control over the government. Once you see that lie for what it is you will never be fooled again, and you may find yourself insulted by the audacity of the proponents and maintainers of this lie. I am of course referring to the paradigm of Left vs. Right, Liberal vs. Conservative, Republican vs. Democrat.

The most effective lies have an element of truth. A little truth gives the lie a foothold in the mind and prevents the less vigilant from looking deeper. The false Left / Right Paradigm is no exception. The power elite of this country and the world over have capitalized on common points of contention among world views of the citizenry and have managed to polarize them into two political categories : Liberal and Conservative. This is not to say that these disagreements aren't real. It should be obvious that some people are fiercely for abortion while others are fiercely against it. However, what may not be so obvious is that these points of contention, these wedge issues are little more than distractions that prevent us from uniting.

I know it's a bit inflammatory to refer to an issue like abortion as a distraction. Most people have strong feelings on the subject. I myself have strong feelings on the subject. However, the reality of the matter is that the politicians that use these kinds of issues to get us riled up in one direction or another are just manipulating us and turning us against each other. As long as they can successfully keep us fighting among ourselves over religious and moral controversies, and as long as they can maintain the illusion that the two parties are significantly different we won't pay attention to their collusion on economic and foreign policy and the rampant corruption endemic on both sides of the aisle. On the issues that will determine the course of history and the future survival of this nation the Republicans and the Democrats are perfectly synchronized in the march towards Armageddon.

What it comes down to is the principle of divide and conquer. The people of the United States will never be converted to one religion, and will never come to an agreement on the best way to handle reproductive issues or homosexuality, which is why these issues are used over and over again.

Those who pull the strings know that these issues will never be resolved, and they know that most people will can be swayed to make a vote based purely on emotion.

Knowing this gives us the secret to turning this country around. We must refrain from focussing on divisive wedge issues which will never be solved and we must unite under one cause: restore the Constitution of the United States. Without freedom of speech, the right to a fair trial, and the guarantee that our government will not torture or murder its citizens we have nothing. The protections provided under the Constitution have been eroded in this country by the Patriot Act and a slew of un-constitutional laws.

This should anger you more than someone violating a precept of your particular belief system, because without the Constitution your right to believe what you believe and to speak your mind can and will be taken away. A cursory examination of history is enough to see where we may end up if we allow ourselves to be turned against each other.

who are we to judge and for that matter it does say in the bible those who judge others and do not leave it in gods hands will also be judged because only god can judge us and he will when the time comes therefore if gay people want to marry why should we judge them.

BRILLIANT and well said my friend!!1 It's good to see there are a few people left that see through the lies and corruption!!!! I applaud you. Your commentary shows the DEMONIC people we have running this country and their devil filled trickery to get folks' mind off the REAL issues. Devils I say that know how to get people to throw rocks at each other while the devils sit back and laugh....But one thing about it devils...when we ALL finally figure you out and UNITE, there's gonna be HELL TO PAY!!!

Freedom Lost is an independent thinker. And Blue Fox a true patriot. Love it. I can barely tolerate political discussions, especially in social settings. Hardcore Rush/Bush lovers and Pelosi/Reed/Obama fans make me queasy. I've declared myself an independent for many years and refuse to be associated with either party. And how correct Freedom Lost is in saying the powerful elite control the path our country will take.. I absolutely believe the overly hyped Trayvon Martin shooting was in hope of sparking a race war and further their agenda for stricter gun control laws. Or possibly a vote in the coming year or so to make owning or carrying a gun a crime with harsh prison sentences. Is the ultimate goal to usher in martial law & loss of freedoms. I believe so.

So while the majority of Americans live in Fantasy Land, there are independents and true patriots who see thru the propaganda. Our eyes are open and WE can see.

George Soros, an atheist billionaire & Obama supporter is quoted as saying he settled in America for its freedoms- wants an open society, a world without borders. Quoted as saying, "I'm for maximum supervision & minimum regulation." He predicts riots coming soon in US city streets & civil unrest. He invests billions in Liberal media & causes. He's a scary man & major Obama supporter.

Oh my god. Do you psycho religious fanatics hear the contradiction in everything you say? God gave everyone free will right? Let them use it to have sex with and marry whoever they wish. YOU DO NOT JUDGE THEIR SOULS, NOR WILL YOURS BE JUDGED FOR ANYTHING THEY DO. So why are you so worried? I was raised a christian and have grown to hate christians. The bible is not gods word, it is a book that has been altered so much for political gain of men that the true word has been skewed. Just be nice to people, treat others as you would be treated, and maybe you will make it to heaven if it exists. I know I will get many nasty replies from religious fanatics but I dont care. I dont listen to cultists....
